Synopsis:
Peter Brook's bold adaptation of John Gay's opera - a cynical satire of eighteenth century London life. This weird and wonderful movie version of the first ever English musical to be written boasts a gloriously outlandish set and characters adorned in stunning primary colours that will dazzle and delight. A period piece that remains true to its original form, it features non-stop sing-along songs, spirited melodies and a real sense of embellished drama. The story follows the escapades of a jailed highwayman and stars Laurence Olivier, Dorothy Tutin and Stanley Holloway.
